    My how the worm turns—–. Now if we could only earmark the tax income from the dispensary to do something for the City, you know like buy body cams for the cops that don’t want them. Just common sense stuff.

    Chip, my thoughts as well.
    There is a lot of triage to be performed in Nevada County, the dying forests, toxic clean-up, the courthouse, our historic hotels, health and recovery programs, the list goes on.
    If this kind of cash flow is a possibility here, profiting personally from it rather than creating a system that would channel the monies into badly needed improvements benefiting the entire community, is just as nefarious as the operations of any avaricious pharmaceutical corporation.
    Let’s do better.

    Yes, Let’s – Let’s get involved, attend the meetings, understand what it means for the people who rely on MMJ, make an informed decision. And, be sure we get this right – much is at stake.

  4. Judith Lowry says:

    It passed!

    Now a draft ordinance (see the link in this post) will be referred to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation. I have no doubt it will pass and this business will be up and running early next year.
